I special ordered a cross body strap for my purse, and it was made and delivered quickly. It works great! Thank you!

I absolutely love this bag. I wanted a couple of little extras and she did them to a tee. The quality of the workmanship was phenomenal. I feel the quality of the leather was very, very good. Will definitely use her again.

This cross body style is exactly what I was hoping it would be, and it was wonderful to be able to get it customized just for me. I've only had it for a few weeks, but the leather just gets softer and softer with use.

About

Graphic design translated into leather

A love of design, screen printing, and leather was how my shop,
Stitch & Swash, was born. What began as a side project became my full time career when a bag I made was used by Bella in the movie Twilight.

Now every day I get to wake up and make bags for people all over the world. I love working from my cozy home studio, located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. I custom make every bag and wallet from start to finish from lovely leather. Thanks for stopping by.

About Leather:
Because leather is a natural product, each bag will bear individual characteristics from it's hide's history. These natural markings in no way affect the strength or wearability of the leather and, in effect, provide nature's stamp of uniqueness.

Regular, gentle dusting or sponging with a soft brush or cloth removes abrasive grit and prevents build up of body oils and salts which can damage the protective topcoat of your leather.

Gently wipe off stains and spills immediately with a soft damp cloth. Do not rub or scrub.

Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat to limit fading and dryness.

Remember, pet claws can scratch and scar leather.

Do not use cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, abrasive cleaners, detergent soaps, or ammonia water. If necessary for spots and spills, use clean lukewarm water only and let air dry naturally. If a stain persists, Lexol leather conditioner is a good product, and also great for re-moisturizing a leather bag. Test any new product in an inconspicuous area before using.

Many find that 'Shining Monkey" and Apple Guard are the best products for protecting a leather purse without changing the appearance. I prefer to let leather items gain their patina. Before trying any product, test it out in an inconspicuous spot.

Rather than wearing out, all great quality leather will develop a great natural patina and change in its appearance over time as it rubs against your body and hands. Good leather doesn't wear out, it wears in - gaining a smooth, soft surface.
